Quote1 My name is Sally Floyd. I'm a reporter, a recovering alcoholic, and a mother who lost her daughter. Truth is, nobody cares about any of that. All that matters about me is this -- I'm the woman who interviewed Captain America. Quote2

Early years

Sally Floyd used to be the writer for a newspaper column called the Mutant Diaries in the Alternative newspapers, a left-wing journal. She was in a relationship with Ken, and had a daughter who turned out to be a mutant and after a few months of life, started de-aging, until she was back to a foetus stage and died. With the death of her daughter and being abandoned by her husband, Sally began to rely on alcohol to ease her pain.

Decimation : Ex-Mutant Diaries

After M-Day, she began the writing of Ex Mutant Diaries. She has also been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous to stop her alcohol problems.

During those periods, she interviewed several mutants powered or not. Among them Marrow and the Morlocks, Angel (who faked being depowered), Collider and the Former Order of Mutants, a group of support for depowered mutants.

As a result of her writings, a killer began sending her pictures of ex-mutants he'd killed and calling her mysteriously, telling her that "not enough mutants" had died. While she briefly considered giving up her column, she was convinced by detectives to continue, in the hope that it would draw him out. Eventually at a meeting with a seemingly depowered Angel (Warren Worthington III), the killer (Ghoul) appeared and attacked her. Angel being depowered was revealed as a mental illusion by Emma Frost and several X-Men also revealed their presence, attacking and eventually defeating the Ghoul (seemingly killing him in the process).

Following the battle, Sally told the story of her daughter in the Ex-Mutant Diaries and willingly entered Alcoholics Anonymous.[1]

Civil War

During the Civil War she worked with fellow reporter Ben Urich to cover the various angles of the conflict. During the conflict, she earned an exclusive interview with Captain America at one his safehouses. She also interviewed Battlestar and his squad of Secret Avengers. Eventually, with the aid of Ms. Marvel, she and Ben Urich discovered that Tony Stark had orchestrated many of the events of the war, including Norman Osborn's attempted assassination of an Atlantean diplomat.[citation needed]

During the conflict she was introduced to Danny Granville, a New York police detective in the super-human division, who she's currently dating.[citation needed]

Toward the end of the Civil War, she quit the Alternative and joined with Ben Urich to create a truly independent newspaper, the Front Line. When the newspaper almost failed, a mysterious benefactor, who revealed to become J. Jonah Jameson bought out the Alternative's office and handed it over to Ben Urich, who renamed it Front Line and became its Editor-In-Chief. Sally Floyd became the lead reporter.[citation needed]

World War Hulk

When Hulk returned to Earth, she was one of the few who stayed in Manhattan in order to cover the event.[citation needed] She has also begun drinking again, occasionally.[citation needed]

Secret Empire

When Hydra took control of the USA under the leadership of Captain America, who had been transformed into a sleeper agent by a Cosmic Cube, Sally was offered an exclusive interview with the new Supreme Leader. Even though the interview was meant to have no topics off-limit, she was requested not to talk about a bombing ordered by Hydra on Las Vegas. Sally pointedly questioned Hydra's regime, the prosecution of super-powered minorities, the erosion of personal liberty, freedom and equality, and their overall double-sided discourse. When the discussion escalated, Sally blurted out a mention of Las Vegas, leading to her subsequent arrest and imprisonment.[2]
